From 12 radiolarian-rich claystone samples of the DSDP-Leg 25, Site 249, situated in the western Indian Ocean southwest of Madagascar 4 species of agglutinated and 38 species of calcareous benthonic foraminifera are described, 13 of them in open nomenclature. As a lot of Valanginian species and Gavelinella barremiana occur in the foraminiferal faunas described here a Valanginian-Hauterivian age is assigned to them. These microfaunas investigated here yield some index species characteristic in the Lower Cretaceous...
